Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition
Automated meter reading (AMR), traffic control and even intelligent parking meters allow a community to save money, generate additional revenue and provide new levels of control for city engineers and public works. Telemetry and SCADA sensors and control points easily snap into the network infrastructure creating control and information necessary to manage public infrastructure. The savings come from eliminating the cost of current leased lines or by reducing the man hours required for current time intensive tasks.
SCADA and Telemetry Case study
A community in rural Appalachia has been able to deploy sensors and collect data from valves and water storage assets. In the last year they have avoided over $2,000,000 in overflow fines from their State and put off a $32 million dollar water tank expansion for at least six years.
